After fighting yesterday with the Handfast Point painting I needed to do something completely different. A complete change of texture from cliffs to feathers seemed like an idea at the time. I picked these discarded feathers whilst out at Lulworth Castle last summer, sometimes it's nice to concentrate on tiny details.

Today I'll be back to the cliffs.....

Hi Vivien, I think there may be a few more to come. It's nice to draw small details of things and to concentrate on textures, patterns and colour. I seem to have a bigger collection of subjects to choose from than I first thought. Something about them means I have to pick them up when I see them.
